These photographs are duplicates of images found elsewhere in the Pictorial Collection and can be viewed online by searching on Archival number B 10212; view of the first Congregational Chapel in South Australia (a duplicate of photograph B 538); several formal studio portraits taken of Aboriginal people in traditional dress and cloaks of animal skin, holding traditional weapons or implements; several other photographs of Aboriginal people, possibly gathered at Point McLeay on Lake Alexandrina at the time of the visit of the Royal Princes Albert and George. These can be viewed online by taking the Browse Album link. The album also contains several views of Glenelg, Burnside and Magill and surrounding hills, Waterfall Gully, and several North Adelaide Church properties including St Peter's Cathedral before its renovation and expansion. The album is a re-assembled and reconstituted photographic copy of an earlier album with original pressed flowers rehoused in plastic and tipped in. The album includes photographic copies of cuttings and illustrations collected from other sources, characteristic of a scrapbook. There is a portrait of a young woman, unnamed (image 57) who may be the creator of the album. Photocopies of three handwritten poems appear in the album. Two of these have the first line 'My darling! my beautiful darling' and the words 'Agnes Neale' Adelaide at the end. The first of these poems marks the gift of a child and the second, the loss of a child. The third poem is titled 'Grace Darling' and appears together with an illustration of Grace Darling rowing a small boat in heavy seas.
